How do I get the center of an object ?
What MCU/Processor/Board and compiler are you using?
Any. I’m using Micropython, but I gather this applies also to C.
What do you want to achieve?
I would like to get the center coordinates of an object. As far as I can tell the
get_x etc. method only gives coordinates relative to the enclosing object. Is there an API for that, or do I have to recurse through the objects until I get to the enclosing screen?
lv_obj_get_coords should give you the object’s area relative to the screen. If you want the center point you can then get the midpoint between
x2, as well as
Thank you. I had not quite understood how
get_coords worked. Especially since I did not quite understand what was meant by area. So in Micropython someone could write something like:
ar = area_t()
x_mid = (ar.x1+ar.x2)//2
y_mid = (ar.y1+ar.y2)//2
One question though: are the two points described in
area_t the upper left/lower right points of the object? So one would have
